My research interests are in the areas of cryptography and information security, with emphasis on the following topics:

  • Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC)
  • Hyperelliptic Curve Cryptography (HECC)
  • Pairing-Based Cryptography (PBC)
  • Lightweight Cryptographic Primitives (Block Ciphers, Stream Ciphers, Hash Functions, etc.)
  • Side Channel Attacks and Countermeasures
  • High Performance Computing for Cryptography and Cryptanalysis (CUDA, Cell Broadband Engine, FPGA Array, etc.)
  • Security in Mobile Ad-hoc Networks (MANETs)
  • Security in Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks (VANETs)
  • Security in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs)
  • Security and Privacy in RFID Systems (Keyless Entry, NFC, EPC, etc.)
  • Security and Privacy in Cloud Computing
  • Security and Privacy in Machine-to-Machine (M2M) Communications
  • Security and Privacy in Internet of Things (IoT)
  • Secure Two-Party and Multi-Party Computation
  • Privacy-Preserving Data Mining
